Zach Blurton Wins URSS/DCRP Soderberg Memorial Championship

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (September 15, 2018) – Zach Blurton captured his second career Jerry Soderberg Memorial Championship event win atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park by wiring the field in Saturday night’s 25-lap Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars versus United Rebel Sprint Series feature event.

In the 25-lap DCRP vs. URSS Sprint Car feature, Quinter’s Blurton gunned into the lead from the pole position at the outset and led all the way, slicing through heavy traffic over the final half of the race for his lone DCRP win of the year and third URSS Victory.

“The car was perfect, I could put it anywhere and it would work,” Blurton said of the No. 2J entry. 

“This one is special, it means a lot to me,” Blurton said after adding the Soderberg Memorial victory to the inaugural triumph in 2013.  “I’m family with the Soderberg now and I wasn’t the first time.”

Following the race’s only caution after four laps, Blurton opened up a half-straightaway advantage in short order over Luke Cranston and Jake Martens with the latter working his way into second by the seventh round.

Bubak Scores Bob Salem Memorial Prelim with URSS

After Arvada Colorado’s Jake Bubak came off the biggest win in his career two weeks earlier at the URSS Belleville 305 Nationals, he continued his domination by winning the 25 lap feature in night one of the Bob Salem Memorial at Oberlin Speedway in Oberlin, KS.

Colorado Veteran Mark Walinder led the field to the green with Bubak starting on the outside front row. Walinder would take the lead going into turn one but Bubak powered around him exiting turn two to lead lap one with Walinder in second and Oklahoma’s Jake Martens third, Jeremy Huish fourth and Zach Blurton rounding out the top five.

As Bubak began stretching his lead, Martens wrestled second from Walinder on lap four and began the chase to catch a flying Bubak. As the leader encountered lap traffic on the fifth lap, Martens began to close the gap between him and the leader.

Bubak proved he was the master through lap traffic in the 25 lap caution free event as he would capture his third feature of the year with the URSS, as Martens settled for second. Third place went to a rim riding J.D Johnson as he passed both Jeremy Huish and Zach Blurton coming out of turn four to the checkers with Blurton also beating Huish to line as he was caught behind a lapped car relegating him from third to fifth at the line. Johnson’s bold move earned him the Keizer Wheels hard charger award as he had started thirteenth.

In victory lane after receiving his winning custom plaque, Bubak signed the plaque and gave it to URSS and the Memorial race promoter Rick Salem in honor of Rick’s dad, Bob Salem. Then shortly after the checkers waved the rain started and didn’t stop until around 9am the following morning, forcing officials to cancel night two of the Memorial Race.

Next on the schedule for the Rebels will be the Jerry Soderburg Memorial at Dodge City Raceway Park in Dodge City, KS on Sept 15th

Bubak Romps for $7K URSS Triumph in Inaugural Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals!

 

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 4, 2018) – Jake Bubak left no question about it and the near-capacity crowd enjoyed every moment of it.

After winning his heat race from the fifth starting position and then rallying from sixth to win his qualifier, Bubak jumped out to the lead at the drop of the green flag in the 30-lap championship feature and led all the way as he lapped two-thirds of the feature field in the process as he ripped the cushion of the legendary oval.

Bubak added the $7,000 payday to the $2,500 that he collected by winning Friday’s preliminary feature aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74b entry.

“You just have to get up top and get after it,” Bubak said of his mastery of the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval.

After earning the pole position for the main event, Bubak led the way to the green flag with Oklahoma City’s Andy Shouse alongside. Shouse tried to challenge in the opening pair of corners but Bubak surged into the lead exiting turn two with Jake Martens slipping into second.  click here for more results

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 16, 2018) – Fairview, Oklahoma’s Jake Martens survived a wild last-lap atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval to pocket more than $4,000 by winning Saturday night’s Second Annual Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP vs. URSS 305 Sprint Car Nationals 30-lap championship feature event.

Martens took the lead away from Brian Herbert and then kept Chad Koch at bay before escaping a last-lap slider from Jake Bubak to pocket $4,040 that included $1,040 in lap money along with the posted $3,000 winner’s share.

“We’ve been running here a few years now, it feels great to finally get the dub,” Richardson said in victory lane.  “I can’t wait for tomorrow night.”

Fairview, Oklahoma’s Jake Martens led the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars vs. United Rebel Sprint Series (URSS) feature field to the green flag from the pole position but it was outside starter Richardson gunning into the lead at the outset.  Richardson slipped away early on, leaving Martens and Ray Seemann to dice for second until Cranston battled past for second on the seventh round.

When action resumed, Richardson was able to distance himself from the field aboard the Myers-powered Poor Boy Kustomz/Richardson Trucking No. 0 J&J as Martens and Seemann traded sliders for second, ultimately taking the checkered flag comfortably ahead of the pack dicing for position in his wake.“  Click here for the rest of the story


Martin Holds Off Late Day Challenge for URSS Victory at 81 Speedway

Park City, Kansas – May 27, 2018 - Jason Martin took the lead in the early stages and then held off a late-race challenge by Michael Day to claim the United Rebel Sprint Series twenty-five-lap feature finale during their portion of 81 Speedway’s “Sprint Car Maynia II” in Park City, Kansas on Sunday night.

Ty Williams and Steven Richardson started on the front row of the twenty-one-car feature and entering turn one on the opening lap, Williams and third-starting Brian Herbert got together causing both to spin. This sent both drivers to the tail of the field on the complete restart which saw J.D. Johnson and Richardson now pacing the field.

On the restart it was Richardson taking the quick lead while “Texas” Colby Estes, Taylor Velasquez and Day were the top five after the first lap was complete. Estes got a run up top coming out of turn two on lap three to take the lead from Richardson while Day made a strong move down low entering turns three and four to take the lead coming down the front stretch one lap later.

Tenth starting Jason Martin worked the top in turns one and two and the bottom in turns three and four to move up through the field and entering turn three on lap seven, got past both Estes and leader, Day, to take the lead in turns three and four.

Valasquez wins URSS Dodge City Thriller

Just one weekend removed from a wild heat race flip atop the 3/8-mile Dodge City Raceway Park, Taylor Velasquez bounced right back to win Saturday night’s 25-lap United Rebel Sprint Series vs. Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Car Clash main event.

Velasquez put the Bearcat Oil Services/Fronk Oil Co. No. 21x out front at the outset from the pole position and capitalized on a lap 20 caution that negated a Jake Martens pass for the lead to secure the win.

Given a reprieve, Velasquez burst out to a lead of several car-lengths as the race restarted, but Martens closed back in and tried to slip under in the final pair of corners only to fall two car-lengths short at the stripe.

“This week has been blood, sweat and tears,” the Turpin, OK, racer explained. “I wasn’t really sure how I’d feel tonight. Getting through the heat race was the most important part of the night, after that I got a lot more comfortable in the car.”

Gunning into the lead at the drop of the green flag, Velasquez gradually slipped away from opening night winner Brian Herbert and Martens in the early going. Martens made his way past Herbert for second on the 15th round and erased Velasquez’ advantage in short order then raced into the lead on the low side only to have the race’s only caution appear to put Velasquez back out front.

 Velasquez took full advantage by going on to become the third different winner in as many rounds of DCRP Sprint Car competition in what was also the season opening event for the United Rebel Sprint Series.
